European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) has awarded Siemens Rail Systems five stars in the Recognised for Excellence (R4E) programme.
EFQM awards Siemens five stars in Recognised for Excellence programme
The award was given to Siemens on the basis of ongoing commitment to use its engineering capabilities to benefit wider society. According to EFQM, award assessors were particularly impressed by the companyâ€™s focus on increasing the uptake of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects. Recent initiatives at Siemens include: training ambassadors to visit schools to run workshops, building relationships with schools located near its train maintenance facilities around the UK and a partnership with London Transport Museum to sponsor its Inspire Engineering programme.
In addition, the EFQM recognised Siemens Rail Systems adoption of a collaborative business relationship standard, which promotes greater cooperation between companies.
